early buzz: john cho in flashforward

If you watch ABC, you've probably seen a confusing promo or two for the upcoming high-concept fall drama FlashForward. As previously reported, John Cho is in the starring cast as an FBI special agent. The series premieres on September 24.

The show is about a mysterious global event that causes everyone to black out simultaneously for two minutes and seventeen seconds, and each person -- 7 billion people -- sees a glimpse of their lives six months from now.

Pretty intriguing premise, and getting to see John Cho in action on a weekly series will be a big bonus. Here's the description of John's character, Special Agent Demetri Noh, according to the ABC website:
Special Agent Demetri Noh, is Mark's partner in the FBI. At the age of 32, he's one of the younger agents in the Field Office. His youthful exuberance leads him to jump to conclusions before gathering all of the facts. Patience is something the more seasoned Mark is trying to teach him. The one area where Demetri is forced into methodical thinking is in planning his wedding with his fiancée, Zoey. If he's not careful, she may find out what he's been hiding from her.
This, of course, is just the latest in John's TV resume. Earlier in the decade he starred as Chau in the WB sitcom Off Centre, and later in the short-lived Fox comedy Kitchen Confidential. This should be an interesting direction for him, and the show is already getting a lot of great buzz: We saw the pilot, and here's why we think you're going to like FlashForward.
